CAD Integration and Automatic Meshing
Posted Tue April 24, 2001 @12:32PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News STAR-CD's Pro*am meshing tool uses a unique collection of hexahedral and "hybrid" cells to automatically generate a body fitted mesh.
The subsurface is used to cut a block of hexahedral cells, leaving all cells untouched by the cutting surface as perfect hexahedra, and producing a variety of cell types where the surface cuts the block.

... The meshes produced in this way tend to be of high quality and are very suitable for CFD – in general over 90% of the cells are perfect hexahedra with no distortion.

A cool idea, although it should be noted that the hexahedra will not be "flow aligned" and will, therefore, lose some of the accuracy that people usually associate with structured block grids. Read the full story.

New CFX 5 Focused on Multiphase Flows
Posted Wed April 18, 2001 @05:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News With the latest release of their CFX 5 product, AEA technology claims it has sped up the solution of multiphase flows by orders of magnitude.
"Our new multiphase capability makes CFX-5 the first choice for simulating complex industrial flows" says Michael Raw, CFX VP of Product Development," it provides substantial benefits by solving the fluid equations together. This ensures that the strong inter-phase coupling which is usually a major cause of concern in traditional CFD codes is resolved in a robust and efficient manner".
Given the difficulty and often overwhelming size of these types of problems, advances of this nature are extremely welcome.
